I read with great anger that the total cost of World Yout Day has now blown out ot $139 million dollars with the Catholic Church only contributing $10 million dollar!

10 Million dollars?

Oh what bullshit!

and that almost 140 million dollars could have been spent on proper infrastructure in NSW, or on Nurses or Teachers.

I absolutely believe that unless the Government provides like for like funding to ALL organisations like this then it should be user pays and in this case the Catholic Church certainly has enough money.

Having given away billions in the last couple of years to compensate the victims of a predatory clergy.

It's ridiculous, isn't it? I think NSW needs to get out of this "must-host-every-big-event-in-the-world" mindset. Otherwise the state will just get bankrupted, especially if it foots the bill for everything.

Think of the number of homeless kids who could be given shelter with that $140 million. I'm a Catholic and I think the money is being wasted.
